Originally developed in Kentucky in the late 1800s these turkeys are a classic amongst heritage turkey keepers. Bourbons are known for their distinct dark red body plumage and white flight feathers. Toms' tail feathers should be white with a soft bar of red across them near the end of the feathers. These birds mature at around 23 pounds for toms and 14 pounds for hens, though some bloodlines can be even larger.
Narragansetts are one of the older turkey varieties, having their standard first published in 1874. They are quite striking with their almost silver-looking plumage over a black feather base. They mature around the same weight as the Bourbon Reds at 23 pounds for toms and 14 pounds for hens but they can take several years to reach their full mature body weights.
